Samsung Mobiles is gearing up to launch their next product that will continue to highlight the Android smartphones brand up against Apple iPhones in the flagship line. The South Korean consumer electronics giant had the tradition of launching a Galaxy S flagship phone at Mobile World Congress but company’s last flagship i.e., Galaxy S8 duo was launched at a later date. It looks like the company is back to its tradition as S9 duo will go official on February 26 at MWC 2018 in February.
Mobile World Congress is the world’s biggest technology event that is purely focused on smartphone innovations. Samsung is expected to announce Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus smartphones and maybe the premium flagship Galaxy X. The Samsung Galaxy X is expected to compete with the Apple’s flagship iPhone X smartphone.
Talking about the Samsung Galaxy S9, previous leaks and renders suggests that the device will not have many changes except for the fingerprint sensor placement, which will be now seen below the rear camera unit instead of next to it. It was tipped that the South Korean giant is likely to upgrade camera in Galaxy S9 from 12 mega pixel sensor to maybe 16 mega pixel image sensor with better capabilities. Further the device is expected to sport a 5.77-inch Infinite view display.
Samsung is leading the high-end smartphone market with 22% market share and iPhone X launch hasn’t really affected the sales of Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8. They are still selling in decent numbers.
At MWC 2018, Samsung is expected to launch Bixby voice assistant smart speakers. All these products will be available by April first week in most countries for purchase. The launch date is expected to be on February 26 at Barcelona, Spain and it will be the first day of the event.
The price of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus is expected to drop as soon as the new successor models are announced.
